Thought I'd show you some more of my beloved Sunbirds! This one here is more commonly known as the Olive-Backed Sunbird, which is a name that bugs me no end; when there's so many relatively nondescript LBJs out there why choose such an uninspired name for such a vividly striking bird with such exquisite colour? Just doesn't make any sense to me … so I've taken it upon myself to rename as the Sapphire-Throated Sunbird :^)

This handsome male was hanging out around the pool area of a resort my family and I were staying at on the island of Koh Chang, here in Thailand, about a month or so ago.
